Collagen Treatment After Wisdom Teeth Removal

An interesting article titled “Effects of Collagen Resorbable Membrane Placement After the Surgical Extraction of Impacted Lower Third Molars,” appears in the 2015 Journal of Oral and Maxilofacial Surgery (vol. 73, pp. 1457-1464) written by Isidoro Cortell-Ballester and et. al. The article explores the use of resorbable collagen membranes (RMs) in the healing of a bone defect on the distal side of a lower second molar (L2M) after surgical extraction of an impacted lower wisdom tooth. In recent years, various clinical studies have been carried out to evaluate the efficacy of guided tissue regeneration in the treatment of intraosseous defects and deep periodontal pockets on the distal aspect of lower second molars after surgical extraction of impacted wisdom teeth. Nonresorbable expanded tetrafluoroethylene membranes, resorbable polylactic acid and resorbable collagen membranes (RMs), bone graft substitutes, and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) have been used. The authors carried out a randomized, double-blinded clinical trial on guided tissue regeneration of intraosseous defects and deep periodontal pockets on the distal surface of L2Ms after surgical extraction of horizontal or mesioangular impacted wisdom teeth. The sample size was calculated at 25 patients per group to detect differences in the bone level variable of 2 mm at 6 […]
